Master slide guitarist John Mooney is revered worldwide as one of THE keepers of the flame for the Delta Blues legacy of Son House, who was mentor to both Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters. Mooney started his career as a teenager playing with Son House in Rochester, NY.
In 1976 Mooney moved to New Orleans and immersed himself in the city’s vibrant music scene. John regularly played with the likes of Earl King, The Meters, Snooks Eaglin, and the man who was to influence his music greatly, the father of New Orleans piano, Professor Longhair. At this place in time John successfully combined the sounds of the delta with the syncopated rhythms of the Crescent City to create the style that has become uniquely his own.

Marc Stone

Roots Music guitarist Marc Stone was nominated New Orleans' Best Blues Artist in 2018 by OffBeat Magazine. He's released three acclaimed solo albums played with many of the greats of Blues, RnB and Funk including Eddie Bo, Betty Harris, Marva Wright, Leo Nocentelli, Benny Turner and Henry Gray.
Stone came up playing on the streets and in the bands of Blues, Funk and Zydeco legends to become one of the most respected contemporary Blues and Roots artists on the Crescent City scene. He is also a radio host with listeners around the world on legendary New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Station WWOZ 90.7-fm/www.wwoz.org.
